Qigong


Home

If you're trying to improve your general health, you may find qigong helpful as part of your program. Qigong is generally safe for people of all ages and levels of fitness. Studies have shown that for older adults qigong can improve balance and reduce the risk of falls. Because the movements are low impact and put minimal stress on your muscles and joints, qigong is appealing to many older adults. For these same reasons, if you have a condition such as arthritis or you're recovering from an injury, you may find it useful.”

Qigong “appears to offer both physical and mental benefits no matter what your age.”

It's used to: reduce stress, increase flexibility, improve muscle strength and definition, increase energy, stamina and agility, and increase feelings of well-being.
